yesterday we celebrated little Henry's 2nd birthday (Mick's brothers boy). he is the cutest little boy around with as much energy as a busy buzzing bee!! we started the afternoon at a local indoor play centre and then headed back to paddy and jordys place for cake and other tasty treats.
claudia standing under the mascot, a chipmunk. if you ever visit one of these types of centres.... take ear muffs, very, very noisy
paddy made the cake, he has made a bananas in pyjamas cake and pooh as well for our girls. great isn't it!!
it was lovely to catch up with micks relatives mohans, madonna and mim who we havent seen for at least 4 years! paddy and jordy have enough toys to rival our house now and the kids just have so much fun, very relaxing age as they basically leave you alone :)
here we all are, jordy holding the birthday boy with paddy behind her madonna and mohans on one side of me and miriam on the other. i think you know the rest :)
on our way home we made a deal that we would go out to the markets for breakfast and let lili spend some of her birthday money. she was given just under $100 from mama and her two grandpas. she is very wise with her money and spent just a fraction on some 'treasures'.
there are few more shabby chic style shops popping up out at the markets much to our delight. but of course we save the best till last, LILLY COTTAGE.
one day i will have to post about our collection of birds, it really is something to see up on our hutch.
and here are the treasures i collected all for the pricely sum of...$3.50. another mans trash... i am sure anita is wondering what is happening to me. i must be regressing to my teenage years when i used to have little collections of odd things everywhere.
dont for get to click on the pictures to enlarge them. have a great weekend and stay safe. our deepest sympathy goes out to those battling bush fires or floods in various parts of our great country.
